Currently I'm using an HTPC to drive my AE300 and it's fine, except that operating the thing is considerably less than convenient and even though I have an ATI remote driving TheaterTek it's still klunky compared to a decent DVD remote. I'm trying to discover if it's possible to drive the PC using an LCD while watching video on the PJ, however at present it seems not possible in which case I'm contemplating ditching the HTPC. My question therefore is what sort of PQ can I expect a decent prog. scan DVD like the 2900 or 757A in comparison to the HTPC which is using a Radeon 9600 and TheaterTek? Clearly auditioning these devices against the HTPC is out of the question, getting a loan of these sorts of boxes is possible but then I'd have to pay considerably more if I bought one since stores that loan for home demoing aren't likely to be discounting SRP, so I need to have some idea if I'd be disappointed if I discarded the HTPC.
